I need to assemble raw reads from a project that already has been published. The metagenome was sequenced with 454, but the files are only present in fastq format.

Is there an assembler which is up-to-date which can assemble long 454 reads with this quality profile? Can UDBA or Megahit deal with that?

Or does anyone have different recommendations?

Thank you for your help.

I thought (though I may well be wrong) that Velvet or SOAP was originally developed for 454 sequencing.

Newbler always worked pretty well with 454. Otherwise CLC genomics was also easy.

Can Spades deal with it for a more modern option ?

I don't think so. I use SPAdes fairly frequently and never noticed any information suggesting it does, but I am guessing a bit.
